LYNX VE.CAN-Shunt: Location of the configurable onboard relay

In the configuration menu of the CCGX connected to a LYNX VE.CAN shunt, one can find a programmable relay:

Since the CCGX relay is already occupied by the generator control I wanted to use it for temperature monitoring in the engine compartment and, if necessary, for controlling a small antifreeze heater, since the CCGX relay is already occupied by the generator control.

(see picture above)


Unfortunately, there is no detailed description of contacts on the board for the LYNX-VE.xxx shunts. Where can I find the assigned relay contacts

.... or can I not read correctly again?


One of my wishes from VE:

A simple module (CAN or BUS) for contoling and switching to


Claus

p.s: One of my future wishes from Victron:

A simple, independent module (CAN o. BUS ) for defining, monitoring, switching a couple of external signals and states, like contacts, voltages and temperatures over VRM over CCGX/VRM.

@mark

thats great, you helped me a lot.

Exactly what I was looking for, but hard to find if you are in germans east end and the boat is in France.Now I can prepare the monitoring circuits for heater and shunt and then drive to Le Havre. The relays response is no problem in this case.

Many thanks from the island Ruegen to you and all in the forum.
